So, I'm having a bad week for weight loss

I've lost all of .2 lbs.  That POINT 2.  I've been down half a pound a couple days, but I just keep bouncing right back afterwards.  Sometimes, I feel like just gorging on everything and forget even bothering.  I've been doing airheads on the treadmill this week, but I don't think that's it.  They're only 60 calories each.  I'll try going without this week but I don't think that will help any.

In other news, since I've been drinking only tap water since switching to Mio, I got a bottle-less water cooler.  Thing is, it doesn't come with a faucet adapter.  It's supposed to come with a saddle valve but it didn't, course even if it did, I couldn't use it since I rent.

So, I went to Home Depot and Lowe's trying to get a quick release faucet adapter that plugs into the thingy I use for my dishwasher (or something similar).  I went to Home Depot first.  The guy said they didn't have anything but to try Target or Walmart but "don't try next door, they don't have anything".  So, after heading over to the nearby Target (they literally had nothing), I went the the Lowe's next to the Home Depot.  They had a quick release thingy but it was too big and wouldn't have been able to be scaled down to the 1/4" intake tube.  They did, however, have a T-junction thingy and a line that could connect that to something that can connect to the intake line.  Woot.

Anyway, I take it home and start trying to set it up.  The intake line barely fits into the plug thingy, but not with the thingy that's supposed to go in it to keep it watertight.  Under the sink, the switch off valve is tight open (I was taught not to have it tight, but slightly off tight).  I need to find my pliers, the ones I haven't seen in years, then shut the valve off and put in the T-junction thingy.  Course, with my luck, not having the watertight thingy in there is going to mean the whole thing will leak.

So, yea, tough week all around.
